ABS-CBN sends relief goods to Sitio San Roque, Quezon City

ABS-CBN decided to help the residents of Sitio San Roque in Quezon City by providing relief goods.

  • They have given noodles, rice, and macaroni to its local government unit to be distributed to each household.
  • The Kapamilya channel was praised by netizens for its prompt action for the people’s pleas for more food. 

Media giant ABS-CBN gained praises after they sent relief goods to the citizens of Sitio San Roque, Quezon City.

1,200 boxes of noodles, 505 sacks of rice, and 78,000 kilos of macaroni were received by the local government unit to be distributed to its constituents. In a video uploaded to the channel’s official news Twitter account, the real sense of “bayanihan” was shown as a group of men helped each other unload a truck.

On April 1, 21 people were arrested after they demanded food aid and other assistance. The Quezon City Police District stated that the protesters are residents of Sitio San Roque. The LGU denied the claims that they haven’t been giving a fair amount of help to all the Quezon City residents, saying there has been “continuous distribution of food packs throughout the city, both from the local government and the barangays to ensure that affected families are looked after during this crisis period.”

With ABS-CBN’s prompt response to help the citizens with their needs, netizens commended its actions.

Television host Gretchen Ho even said that it is supposed to be the way to solve problems, and not by harassment.

Other netizens also thanked the Kapamilya network.
